1. Stop Slaughter of Deer in Rock Creek Park
Rock Creek Park in Washington, DC has been a haven for deer for 120 years until now. The National Park Service has ordered the killing of half of the park's 314 deer by either baiting them with treats and shooting them with guns and arrows or catching them in nets and shooting them in the head with captive-bolt guns.
Please send a letter to the Director of the National Park Service asking him to abandon this plan, and instead protect the parks resident deer.
2. Tell the Feds to Protect Wild Horses in Mesa Verde National Park
The wild horses in Mesa Verde National Park in Colorado have been around for a while and are considered a part of the park's natural landscape and history and are also enjoyed by thousands of people who visit the park every year. The National Park Service is now seeking public comments about how to manage this herd.
Please submit a comment to the NPS urging them to protect these horses and manage the population humanely with birth control, as it does with other populations.
3. Tell Congress Enough is Enough: Defund Wildlife Services Already
A few weeks ago "wildlife specialist" Jamie Olson made the news for sharing pictures of his dogs brutally torturing a female coyote who was caught in a leghold trap. Russell Files, another Wildlife Services agent was just busted for baiting and catching his neighbors 2-year-old dog Zoey in a leghold trap for coming into his yard too many times...all while we paid for him to do it. Wildlife Services kills millions of animals each year and their methods can not only be considered cruel towards wildlife, but they put people and our pets in danger as well.
Please send a letter to Congress asking that Wildlife Services be defunded.
ON BEHALF OF
THANK YOU !
